Misawa Atsuhiko

Also found via ON READING online shop: "Paintings of Animals" by Kyoto born artist Misawa Atsuhiko renowned for his wooden life-sized animal sculptures and paintings. Misawa Atsuhiko's art focuses on the border between the real animals and the images which we have: "If someone says 'I like bears', it is unclear if the person likes the real bear - the fierce animal or the bear character, a stuffed toy or something else."

Visit the publisher's website for more great artists and books (you might want to click English info)!

There is another book from 2007 mainly with his sculptures.
